try every day to elevate political discourse and to focus on issues that matter to all of us. in the battle of ideas, america leads the world in whole hearted discussions and disagreements. and these arguments can be heard on a daily basis. but what i did on friday had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with that great tradition. and i am deeply sorry. upon reflection, i so wish that i had been more thoughtful, more considerate, more compassionate. but i was not. and what i said is now a matter of public record. but if i could add something to the public record, it would be this. that i deeply regret what i said, and that i have learned a sober lesson in these last few days. that the politics of vitt re oil and destruction is a miserable place to be, and a miserable person to become. and i promise that i will take the opportunity to learn from this experience. my hope is that it will renew in me a spirit of humility and humanity, that looks for the good and that builds upon the great things that this country has to offer to all of us, regardless of our political persuasion.

in democratic congressman john yar mouth of kentucky with us from louisville. good afternoon, sir. >> hello, martin. >> did you personally have an inkling that the health care rollout might not be entirely straight forward? >> well, not really. we all figured, i think, in congress that things were going to be running smoothly. that people could readily access the website and get the information they needed. of course, i'm here in kentucky, where we have done a phenomenal job. and have had great success already with about 40,000 people finding health care they never had before. >> what about the president's promise that those with policies that they liked would be able to keep them? did you ever have an inkling that might not pan out? >> yeah, well, i think early on many of us who were involved in writing the bill thought that he did not express himself clearly enough. that we all knew what he went. and what he meant was that there was nothing in the bill that was going to force an individual to change his or her policy. he didn't say it that way. and because we knew insurance companies canc

the health law's supporters and opponents, it's personal. with each side using the holiday as a vehicle to spread their message. the democratic national committee launched its own website, your republican uncle.com with handy notes for defending the affordable care act at the dinner table. your uncle says obama care only adds to the deficits. and you say the congressional budget estimates it will save more than $200 billion in the first decade and $1 trillion in the following ten years. and then you go for seconds on dessert. see? it's as easy as pumpkin pie. as for republicans, they're getting a jump on festivus, asking folks to join in an online airing of grievances, sharing stories of insurance cancellations at gop.gov. we're guessing they're not going to follow up with information on the new plans that are better and more affordable. but happy thanksgiving to you too, speaker boehner. >>> joining me now, krystal b l ball, and professor bob shrum. caramel and popcorn, good to go. all squared away. very important. >> yes, although i was on team carpel. >> you were on team caramel? >>
